    Check if a utility like "Speed fan" will work with your motherboard.
    It can be used to control fan speeds on supported motherboards

    tried speedfan, however couldn't work out how to get it to work.

    There is no simple option such as "make speed fan work at 100%"

    You can't control the fan on any of the Studio models, afaik. Dell changed the way the fans interface with the system and none of the usual utilities work.

    That is a massive shame if that is true.
